Integrating Emerging Technologies into Undergraduate Mathematics Courses
Erick Hofacker, Kathryn Ernie, and Sherrie Serros
June 7 – 10, 2011
Registration Fee: $175 per person($250 for registrations received after April 26, 2011)
The workshop is designed to assist faculty who have plans and desires to integrate new emerging technologies into their undergraduate mathematics courses. Participants will have the opportunity to develop materials relevant to courses they are teaching. Each day of the workshop will concentrate on a different focus for using technology in the classroom.
- Communication will focus on the development and integration of instructor- and student- produced podcasts, using interactive white boards and digital pens & slates, discussion boards, virtual classrooms, and the mathematical capabilities of tablets and smartphones.
- Visualization & Exploration will focus on constructing a series of inquiry-based learning activities that use readily available web-based tools and animations, WolframAlpha, and programs such as MS Excel.
- Assessment will focus on writing conceptually based clicker questions, the integration of online homework and quizzing, and a discussion about different security-based systems for online testing.
